There are several problems with filenames that have a colon (:) in the filename.

1) On Windows, the colon after the drive letter breaks the Format->Page->Background Picture function. The colon is filtered out of the filename in the resulting page-this-bg-color tag. Manually re-inserting the colon fixes this.

Reported in this post on the forum:


2) On Linux, where colons are allowed in file names, inserting or linking an image with a colon in the file name is broken. Also including a texmacs file with a colon in the name into another document is broken.

3) On Linux, saving a document to a filename with a colon causes TeXmacs to hang.

I can create several reports for these issues, if desirable.
